the crowd i don't see victims. >> romney and president obama both in ohio today. the real clear average of polls in the last 14 days. there are a bunch of polls in this average, including. >> have it up to ten points, some down to about three, four. this average is right at about five points. governor romney also bringing out some other people on the trail with him today. >> cannot aforfour more years of barack obama failed policy. we have need real recovery. >> things i'm baffled by is the existence of the skills gaffe, at the same time as we have this crazy unemployment. something is fundamentally disconnected. >> okay, the first guy we probably know if you are a golfer. jack nicklaus, golfing, second guy had to look twice. discovery channel "dirty jobs" host. steve hayes, "weekly standard." a.b. stoddarde, associate editor of hill. and kirsten powers from daily beast. she sat down and said i'll get all the e-mail. i'm in charles krauthammer's chair. yom kippur ends at sunset. >> the empty chair. >> left it in his honor. >> bret: what about today on his trail? ohio, the importance. >>

also has politicians from both parties agreeing on one thing. president obama and the romney camp both had something to zayed. the president tweeted out this, "nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs lockout is resolved soon." but it was romney's running mate and packers fan paul ryan who had the strongest words. >> it is time to get the real re refs. and you know what, it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> and republican wisconsin senator scott walker tweeted a call to get the unionized refs back to work. walker is famous for his crackdown of unions in his state. he responded by saying this is not a union issue. >>> the redskins coach wallet is a little lighter this morning. the league is fining offensive coordinator kyle shanahan $25,000. he was not happy with a ref's call and was given an unsportsmanlike penalty for berating the refs. he then chased them off the field and into the tunnel. >>> we know madonna is no stranger to controversy, but her latest comments' the verizon center could affect the presidentia

and the battle for the buckeye state. president obama, mitt romney both campaigning there today. look at the poll from cbs and the "new york times." >> showing in ohio now the president has a 10-point lead over mitt romney among likely voters. 53% to 45%. that number's going to jump off the screen for a lot of people in this country. ohio, 18 electoral votes, seventh highest in the nation and again no republican has ever won the white house without winning that number. >> how many times have we said that? >> say it every time. >> jim acosta has that stitched into his t-shirts. hi, jim. traveling with mitt romney from ohio. >> reporter: that's how that. good morning. i think mitt romney has also heard that once or twice. thanks to john berman for bringing that up again. rolling up on a mitt romney event getting started in a few moments in westerville, ohio, outside of columbus. mitt romney goes then up to the northern part of the state, hit the cleveland area and toledo later on this evening. we tried to talk to mitt romney about the struggles he's having here in ohio before the poll came out this

of muscling on both sides. i think it affected his relationship with barack obama for the first few years of his presidency, but i think now that they've sorted things out between themselves and i think he said, look, he loves being center stage. the clinton global initiative is huge. it's attended by almost as many world leaders as the u.n. general assembly. you have a guy who really isn't president but for all intents and purposes is a very influential world leader. somebody said to me, who needs who more? does barack obama need bill clinton more or does bill clinton need barack obama more? i think they need each other. bill clinton, the inflew enser. i think for barack obama there's no more effective, articulate defender of his right to be re-elected right now than bill clinton. >> okay. >> so along the same lines is a new poll, quinnipiac, "new york times" poll that shows mr. obama is up by 10 points in the state of ohio over mitt romney. is that for the efforts of obama's great campaigning or does it have more to do with bill clinton and that widely admired speech he gave at the dnc?

.j. lang got fed by the refs. even president obama tweeted. nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the revs lockout is settled soon. this is after a disputed field goal gave the baltimore ravens a one point win over the new england patriots and a series of botched calls and misapplied rules that have driven coaches, players, and fans crazy. all this because of a labor dispute between the nfl and its regular referees that began when the league locked out the refs in june. >> reporter: the referees want more money asking more than the nfl's offer to increase the salaries from $149,000 a year to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl players salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only 3.5 years and most of the refs have other careers so these aren'tful-time jobs for them. >> reporter: the nfl wants to make the refs full time and to add more refs so the average referee would make less money. they want to move them to from a pension system to a 401k. but in the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, seems solvable. red

,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead of the candidates to find out just how elusive. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: ohio state university students about to head out from an obama campaign office to register voters, yell a familiar refrain. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: they are a coveted voting block for the president, in this fiercely contested swing state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with the realities of governing, they'

as paul ryan calls him now. >> both of them could call each other that quite evenly because -- >> stephanie: oh, my god. obama is pulling ahead in wisconsin. i thought -- paul ryan was wildly popular. >> isn't he? >> did you see that a crowd in ohio yesterday was chanting ryan ryan. and romney tried to get them to chant romney/ryan and they weren't having any of it. i have the audio if you would like to hear it. >> paul ryan. isn't that something? wait a second. romney ryan. romney ryan. romney ryan. there we go. all right. >> wow. [ wah wah ] >> you can just hear the stench. >> stephanie: who asked him to clap for him? which candidate was that? >> fred thompson. >> can i have a little applause? >> i'm pretty tired. thank god. >> it will get out of hand, get out of hand quickly. >> stephanie: same thing about what is going to happen to romney. things are going to get bad for romney and they're going to get bad quickly. oh, boy. a you it doesn't matter because they're using polls from 2008.
